Get ready for a superb summer at our fabulous Sussex gastropub

 

We all feel the need to get away from the hustle and bustle now and then, and where better to do that than in the finest rural pubs near Brighton? Here in our delightful little corner of Sussex, the pace of life is slow, the food is wonderful and the drinks are refreshing. We like to think that the pubs around Devils Dyke serve as a form of sanctuary in an increasingly hectic world, so come along and find out for yourself.

 

If you work hard from Monday to Friday, why not get away from it all when the weekend comes around? Here at the Shepherd & Dog, we have a large and very beautiful garden, and it’s ready and waiting to bring you a golden opportunity to recharge the batteries of life. Not all the cycle friendly pubs in Sussex can offer you comfy outside seating, but ours can.

 

When it comes to evening dining Brighton offers a number of exceptional eateries, but it’s reassuring to know you can savour an incredible culinary journey without having to travel into the heart of the city. There are a number of gastropubs in Sussex to choose from, but we feel the plus points that we bring cannot be matched in other places.

 

And while we welcome plenty of visitors in the autumn and winter months, like many other Sussex pubs we come alive completely when summer comes around. As one of the finest walkers pubs in South Downs, we have plenty of foot traffic during the day, but we’re also able to provide a sanctuary for motorists, cyclists and dog owners. It’s all about having something for everyone for us.

 

If you are yet to sample the delights of the Shepherd & Dog, why not make the change this summer? Whether you’re looking to soak up the sun or shelter from the occasional shower, we can make it happen. Here in the chocolate box village of Fulking, one of the finest pubs in the South Downs National Park is ready to make your summer an extremely special one.

 

The Shepherd & Dog is one of those Sussex pubs for families that everyone should visit at least once. Call 01273 957 382 to book a table.

Beer festivals bring out the best in Sussex gastropubs

 

As one of the most popular pubs in the South Downs National Park, we’ve always been a big fan of beer festivals. If you’ve never been to a beer festival before, you probably don’t realise what you’re missing out on. These days, there are some fabulous small breweries in the UK, each of them offering a tasty and distinctive range of craft beers covering everything from zesty lagers to dark bitters and all points in between.

 

We love the fact that these occasions attract customers from all across the south-east of England, including a pleasing selection of familiar faces and newcomers. Those in the former group know that we go to great lengths to provide the variety that such occasions deserve, while those in the latter group are embarking on a journey of discovery that they are highly likely to enjoy.

 

The Shepherd & Dog is of course rightly regarded as a highly respected Sussex gastropub, and we pull out all the stops to make sure the food is as wonderful as the beer at these events. We’ve been offering the type of fine dining Brighton has become synonymous with for many years, so if you like to eat well and drink well too, the next beer festival here deserves to be a must-try.

 

Everything you need for an unforgettable day

 

We hold beer festivals throughout the year, and those in the spring and summer come with the added attraction of a garden that ticks all the right boxes. Just imagine watching the world go by with a beer and a bite to eat, surrounded by the most glorious countryside. The views from here are spectacular, so why not come and find out for yourself?

 

There has been a growing trend towards lager for several decades now, but beer festivals are a great way to rediscover an interest in beers, porters, stouts and mild ales. The world of beer can be just as diverse as the world of wine, with all the nuances and subtleties that make it so wonderful. These are drinks to be savoured from the first drop right through to the last.

 

We love being a pub that offers something for everyone. We remain one of the most popular rural pubs near Brighton, of course, but events such as beer festivals enable us to reach out to customers from right across the region. Keep an eye on our events page for details of these festivals and other wonderful occasions.
